Gospel Hope to End a Hard Year

A Saturate Webinar

2020 has been a year unlike what most of us can remember. Corporate loss and lament have mixed with division and disunity in many spheres of our lives… all within the pain of a pandemic we’ve each felt to varying degrees. Faith has been challenged, mission and ministry have shifted, relationships have been tested, and the pangs of sadness and death have reverberated into many communities.
As we enter this Advent season—a season of yearning—we look back, look forward, and remember: God is still God, His gospel is still good news, and His Kingdom still exists amongst His people “on earth as it is in heaven.” We all feel the need for hope, peace, love, and joy more overtly, and God is the fullness of all those things and more.
Join us for 2020’s final Saturate webinar, as Jeff Vanderstelt answers your questions and draws us back to the good news of the gospel, even and specifically in the difficulties of 2020.
